Actor Kevin Bacon and his film-scoring brother, Michael, formed the Bacon Brothers band in 1995. Despite their busy separate careers, they keep their Americana, rock, country, singer-songwriter band going.

The Bacon Brothers released their seventh album, 36 Cents, in 2014. They recently returned to the studio to record a new song written by Kevin Bacon, “Broken Glass.” A 14-date spring and early summer tour will bring them to the Joy Theater in New Orleans on June 5 and the Acadiana Center for the Arts in Lafayette on June 6.

It's a respite from their day jobs — Kevin's as an actor, Michael's as a composer and an instructor at Lehman College in New York — and the duo has released eight studio albums.

The latest of those, "The Way We Love," was out Friday, July 17, with nine original songs and a live cover of the Cannonball Adderley/Buckinghams hit "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," recorded with friend and former baseball star Bernie Williams.
